Study Abroad


The Seton Hill Study Away Program

Seton Hill offers students the opportunity to take intensive courses in other countries (and sometimes, in other parts of the U.S.) that are taught by Seton Hill faculty, or in foreign universities with which Seton Hill has partnership agreements. Through the Seton Hill Study Away Program, students have the benefit of Seton Hill faculty and classmates as travel guides and companions. 

J-Term & M-Term
Study Away Program courses are offered during Seton Hill’s January and May terms. The January term (J-Term) and May term (M-Term) are optional terms that allow students the opportunity to complete intensive 2 – 3 week long courses of study.

Passport to the World Program

Seton Hill will underwrite the cost of passports for students who complete a project that guides them through the planning process for study abroad.

Recent Study Away Program courses have taken place in Paris, France; Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; Cuernavaca, Mexico; London, England; Beijing, China; Rome, Siena, Florence, Pisa, Padua and Venice, Italy; and Cordoba, Spain.

Independent Study Abroad

Seton Hill’s Study Abroad Office will assist students who wish to make plans for studying abroad independently or through programs offered by other universities or outside services. (Students must select any of the countries participating in the United States Program on International Education.) Qualified students may take a summer, a semester, J-Term, M-Term, or a year of study at a foreign university. Seton Hill maintains special relationships with institutions in Japan, Korea, China, Israel, Italy, Spain, and Puerto Rico, and financial aid is usually available for study abroad.
